Included among the "1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die", edited by Steven Schneider.
I'm going to kill every woman you love until you die. You're notorious for not protecting your women.
Oh Dae-Su states that the maxim, "Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, like a bird from the snare of the fowler," is from Proverbs 6:4; these numbers are emphasized shortly afterwards. The saying is actually from Proverbs 6:5.
